Native Cinema

As an introduction to the 98th annual Santa Fe Indian Market (Aug. 17 through 18), the New Mexico History Museum (113 Lincoln Ave. in Santa Fe) presents a Native Cinema Showcase in partnership with Smithsonian’s Museum of the American Indian. On Wednesday, Aug. 14 the museum screens a trio of native-made films. At 1pm it starts with the Peruvian film Wiñaypacha (Eternity), a drama about an elderly couple living in a remote part of the Andes while carrying the sadness of being forgotten by their long-absent son. At 3pm you can catch the American film The Blessing, a feature-length documentary about a Navajo coal miner raising his daughter while struggling with the destruction of his sacred land. The film fest closes out at 7pm with the Canadian drama Falls Around Her, which focuses on a world-famous Anishinaabe musican (Tantoo Cardinal) who returns home to rest and refresh herself only to find that her fame and the outside world intrude. Admission to these screenings is free, but seating is limited. To learn more go to nmhistorymuseum.org.
